  1. Great book for anyone looking to understand how to manage … Great book for anyone looking to understand how to manage their financial future in a practical way. Couples should definitely read considering finance is the leading stress on a partnership or marriage. The author’s style is clear, concise and casual. I’ve found financial books to sometimes be preachy or can leave the reader with the feeling that managing your financial future is a daunting and/or depressing– Motske’s style is anything but!

  2. This book is a must read for all couples. I really enjoyed reading this book. It’s really a simple guide to get on the same page with your significant other regardless of your current financial situation. This is a must read for any couple, my husband and I have our a financial plan that we follow, but we don’t naturally speak the same language financially. This has helped up avoid a few argument and learn how to better communicate and speak money to each other.

  3. Must read for all couples young and old! This book will change your life, you and your spouse will have more time enjoying the good things without worrying about how your going to tackle money problems!
